I can't believe I haven't blogged for almost a month, my life has been pretty hectic lately and I definitely needed a break for a couple of weeks, but then my mojo disappeared and I got stuck in Milan during the Salone with the ash cloud. So finally I am feeling revitalised and have lots of gorgeous pics to share from the furniture fair, as well as a couple from an unexpected weekend in Paris on my overland trip back to London.
First up is one of my most favourite things from Milan, although not even an exhibit! Our first stop was the new Venture Lambrate area, with disused garages and warehouses turned into galleries, and it was there I found these fantastic tapas-style picnic boxes from old toolboxes and a rusty metal trolly for full and empty glasses. I love the idea of getting a couple of toolboxes for my roof terrace when I move house in the summer, especially with basil plants standing next to them so you can just rip off the leaves to add to your mozzerella.
